I have been around for a few console launches in my time and I have to say, the Xbox One and PS4 both have a really strong line-up available day one. Arguably the best launch line-up consoles have ever seen.  There is a lot to choose from so you better start thinking about those Xmas lists a little early this year.

I'm not saying the characters they have are bad choices, they just don't have enough characters to choose from considering the Wii U is more powerful then a PS3 and a Xbox 360.

super Smash bros for wii u doesn't have any new characters that makes me want to pay $50 when the magorady of the game is Brawl with upscalled + graphics, touch screen gimics and 30 (something) characters on BOTH the wii u and the 3ds verson. for the 3dS it's alriht, but for the Wii U this isn't lookin to good. The wii u is capable of more then that if it can run assasin's Creed 3. I'm still gettin the ame though.

Well, we both hope that Super Smash Bros for Wii U will really save it. I doubt that, but I hope Nintendo doesn't screw up this version like they did with Mario Kart 8. Mario Kart 8 SUCKS compared to Mario Kart Wii... maybe it was best for you to rent the game, because you would SLIGHTLY be disappointed when you beat the game and play online. By the way, I'm getting the new 3DS LL that's coming out next year.

To make a point, that Nintendo needs to do something or the Wii U will be the next virtual boy with no ames. I don't mean literally, no aames but it's missing 3rd party games that last gen consoles are etting such as the PS3 and Xbox 360.
